The only great thing about Corvo is that's he's a very good 7th defenseman come playoff time if Boychuk is ready to go. Far, far better than most teams will have in that spot. I'll take that depth all day, every day.
Other than that, this one time supporter has had his fill. He's probably trying his damnedest, but he doesn't fit in to Claude's system any better than Kaberle did.
Let's bury the "offensive defenseman" thing and just stick to guys who can play Bruins hockey...it seems to work out better that way.
I watched Corvo stand to the right of Khubodin and spin in circles watching the Sens rapid fire about 4 shots on one of the PPs in the second I believe. No stick on the ice, no covering a man, just lost and useless
At one point, when the Bruins were on the PP, an Ottawa player was coming up the boards with speed taking the puck into the zone. Instead of squaring up to them and skating backwards into the zone, Corvo TURNED AROUND and skated into his zone with his back to the puck allowing the ottawa player to move right around him.
I don't think I've ever seen an NHL dman do that before.
Your son played horribly tonight. Again. The game was won by the goaltender. Your son had nothing to do with it. I'm sure your son's a wonderful person and that you're a fine mother, but he really needs to leave the Bruins and return to your loving arms. I'm sure everyone involved will be happier for it.
